The Cayuse Mountain Trail #235 leaves Avalanche Gulch Road at a FS sign and parallels Cayuse Creek on mostly single track with a moderate grade. It then follows the path of a very old double track road that climbs steeply up the side of Cayuse Mountain to reach a saddle, a 4wd-accessible FS trail head, an outstanding view to the East, and the Bilk Mountain Trail.
